Byodoji Temple is close to Ohmiwa Shrine.
This temple was originally built in 581 by Ohmiwa Shrine at the request of Prince Shotoku. It was then called Ohmiwaji.
The two-story pagoda is surrounded by 16rakan-buddha statue.

Byodoji Temple was abolished at the beginning of the Meiji Restration when Shinto and Buddhism were forcibly separated.
Therefore it was rebuilt in 1977.
The statue of Prince Shotoku is near the gate of Byodoji Temple.
It takes about 10 minutes on foot from Taishoro Ryokan.
